Report Hate Crime at The Mall

The Mall in Luton has become the first shopping centre in Bedfordshire to become a Hate Crime Reporting Centre, ahead of National Hate Crime Awareness Week

The Mall will work in partnership with Bedfordshire Police to join the list of organisations to act as reporting centres, allowing victims/witnesses of hate crime to report the matter in familiar surroundings and to someone they may feel more comfortable with rather than reporting it directly to the police.

Bedfordshire Police works in partnership with a wide variety of partners who perform the role of third party reporting centres. Staff within these centres have been trained to assist victims or witnesses in submitting a report to the police and can make such a report on the victim’s/witness’ behalf.

If you or anyone you know has been affected by hate crime contact Bedfordshire Police on 101, via True Vision online at report-it.org.uk or via the Third Party Reporting Centres, including The Mall Luton, a list of which can be found on the Bedfordshire Police website. Don't ever suffer in silence.
